Questions about Set
« on: July 10, 2011, 11:35:16 am »
Em Hotep, everyone! :)

Wasn't sure where to post this, so I'm taking the chance I cn put it here. lol  

I'm in the process of writing a blog on Set, for the Pagan Mom Blog, as a part of her "31 Days of Deity".  I have already written a piece on Pan, who is one of my Patrons.  I volunteered to write about Set, because I believe he deserves respect, and to dispel a lot of the inaccuracies (among other things, ::clears throat::).

I do not possess any copies of the Pyramid or Coffin Texts, nor do I have anything available except that which is online.  Iwa'at Bast-Mut has provided me with some info from the KO prayer book, and I love it.

I've also used the info on the Kemet.org site, as well as a couple reference links from there.  The Wikipedia article looks like it has a lot of inaccuracies, though I did find a couple random web-sites that looked spot on. :)

There are some other things available online, at sacred-texts.org, though I'm not sure how to find the info.

Does anyone have any favorite Set sites, or any online info I can get a hold of?  I'm getting a better picture of him daily, though I would like all the input I can get. I've got a good bit written, though I am going to expand on that, and refine what I have.

Any help will be appreciated, and I will give a shout out to the temple in the blog. :)

Thanks!!

Sora

Most stuff online about Set is wrong, honestly. The best source for information on him is here: http://www.scribd.com/doc/33920230/H-Te-Velde-Seth-God-of-Confusion-a-Study-of-His-Role-in-Egyptian-Mythology-and-Religion Te Velde is one of the only academic books on the god- and luckily you can read it online.

I have worked with him, and picked up tid bits here and there. So if you have any questions, feel free to ask.

Yes!!!! :squeals:

You see, the only actual book I have on Egyptian Mythology is the Oxford paperback edition.  The article on Set was really good, and was written by the author of this book. :D

So, I've been looking for this, and thank you SO MUCH for giving me that link.

Unfortunately for me, this ole puter froze up and I couldn't really look at it.  So, I'll try another browser later, and see if that works.  If it doesn't, I'll have to go to a friend's house just to read it. :)  Totally worth it.

:D

Are you referring to this wiki entry: http://www.wepwawet.org/wiki/index.php?title=Set or the one on Wikipedia itself: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Set_(mythology) ?

Em hotep, Sora,

I would love to read your article on Set, when you have it finished, if you would like to share it. I can't offer any scholarly help, but I can say, that, in my experience, He's OK. :).

Good luck with your work.

In scrolling through the thread it looks like everyone has already listed the few sources I've found, but I just wanted to express my excitement about your upcoming article and wish you the best with your writing efforts!
